Anyhow, “Joe the Plumber” is continuing a long, proud tradition of dimwitted hicks spouting off their opinions about global politics. This tradition can be seen in the comments of Toby “The Antichrist” Keith, Alan Jackson, me (let’s be frank), and now Joe.
In any case, even though he apparently doesn’t have a plumbing license, he must have a master’s degree in political science, because on the campaign trail he recently said, “I do know that” in response to a person saying that a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel.
In fact, I can hardly do the article justice by just describing it, so here is an excerpt:
At a stop in Columbus, he fielded the question on Israel from a self-identified Jewish senior citizen.
The questioner said he was “concerned” with Barack Obama’s associations and “It’s my belief that a vote for Obama is a vote for the death to Israel.”
Wurzelbacher responded: “I do know that.”
The questioner then complained about Obama’s tax policies and reiterated his Israel comment.
“Well, you know what, I’ll actually go ahead and agree with you on that one,” Wurzelbacher said. “You know … no, I agree with ya.'”
Wurzelbacher’s first trip to the podium as a McCain surrogate was freewheeling. He often apologized to reporters gathered in a flag store for talking from his gut.
“I’m honestly scared for America,” Wurzelbacher said.
